From Laxey by train. Sunny, clear to the west so could see Northern Ireland, slightly too hazy in other directions for distant views.Owen B18/06/2019
With Val. Parked at Bungalow and followed path to summit. Lunch in the café then descended same route. Climbed again on 19/06/2019 this time from the harbour at Laxey to make a better walk of it. Ascended via path that contours south of Slieau Ouyr and Slieau Lhean to Black Hut then weak path to summit. Descended same route. A great walk.mike.hoult14/06/2019
Although it was nice weather when I started walking up the hill, just before I got to the top it turned really nasty - strong wind, rain and hail.Alancache14/06/2019

5th tump of 11 on a 43km circular from Ballure, climbing North Barrule, Beinn Reinn, Claugh Ouyr and Slieau Managh, re-tracing route back SE then heading South to drop onto the Millenium way, following this over the stream and where the trail veers off SE I headed South direct for Snaefell, climbing upto the railway just as an electric Tram whirred past and then over to the Trig pillar and summit rock. Pity there was no view. I paid the cafe a visit, a much more sedate affair than at Snowdon. My gps recorded 621m @ SC 39778 88090. Onwards route was NE on the flagged pathway continuing over a fence and over the railway to the John Smythe shelter and then SE heading for Slieau Lhean....Dazingdale21/07/2018

5/7. From Bungalow.PGCE28/09/2017
A dull trudge on a trodden path up an almost featureless hillside from Black Hut was the price for ethical bagging. The view was fabulous though, Lake Dist, Galloway and Snowdonia, from the deserted (at 1715 hrs) summit. By electric railway in 1978- a better way! Best view of Laxey Wheel. Interesting and delightful rolling stock.pwheeler17/06/2017
Fantastic cheat of a Marilyn. Took the train up with Hannah to celebrate her 30th birthday. Cloudy but beautiful at the summit.Fionalevey01/05/2017

7.30pm seventh summit of the day in a continuous progression of higher and higher summits till the high point of the island! Surprisingly there is a Spitfire aircraft on the summit which according to two local lads I met up there had only been there a few days...bizarre!vegibagger22/07/2016
From The Bungalow (SC 39586 86706). Well defined, straightforward path to the summit.david23020103/06/2016
Electric train to Bungalow. walked up from there.johnhenderson6212/05/2016
Went up on tram and then walked to summit. Very foggy.Ben Lowery28/03/2016
Up from Ramsey. Took path round Eastern edge of Ballure Plantation and then up slopes of North Barrule, fences are not well maintained so no problems despite no path. Took ridge to Clagh Ouyr, wind was fearsome. Down to Black Hut on A18 to Black Hut. Up slopes to Snaefell. Windy and cloudy on top so took railway track down to bungalow (trains don't run in winter). Down to old mine (boggy and no path) and then followed track to Laxey.tsharp01/01/2016
Rode up on tram for an easy bag.mcc29/10/2015

Parked at the Bungalow parking area with a straight walk following the well defined path to the summit, approximately 20 minutes with the final approach the steepest. 360 views on a clear, still evening.dreeder7530/06/2015
From the bungalow, busy on bank holiday despite moody skys.rhalstead04/05/2015
Trains from Douglas while waiting to board Sarpen. (DE)CJM18/08/2014
A short walk from the train station which was a longer walk than some of the other Marilyns we had done! Clear views. We had just back packed around the excellant coastal path and only met a German couple doing the same. The northern beach (desert) section is not to be missed but carry extra water if camping over night in a gravel pit under the beams of the Point of Ayre light house as we did. North Barrule looks like the finest hill on the Island but saddly we had run out of time.mindlessflogger09/08/2014
On my own. There and back from Black hut,33 minutes. Cloud on summit.alwaysinshorts30/07/2014

Mad March 13. Mountain roads covered in drifted snow. Walked in from Ramsey heading for Snaefell. Up snow bound Elfin Glen, cut into fields to main road. Via N Barrule and super ridge to Clagh Ouyr. Descent to Black Hut and 200m climb in snow to frozen top. Superb views, not a soul around. Down closed A18 to Ramsey.nordicstar29/03/2013
